This is a Gender and Health Assessment of Thailand, using available data and proxy data from WHO to measure gender equality. The authors used data and infographics to answer four key questions:
- Why does gender matter for health in Thailand?
- Do men and women in Thailand have equal access to determinants of health?
- Do gender, location, education, and income affect the health status of people in Thailand?
- Are gender, equity, and human rights reflected in the legal and institutional structures and capacity of Thailand?
Based on data, the authors concluded that forward-looking policies, if effectively implemented through suitable institutional mechanisms and adequate capacity, support the mainstreaming of gender, equity and human rights perspectives in health and enable change towards greater equity.
